Mary Norris is a writer and editor who is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, and lives in Manhattan and Rockaway. She was educated at Rutgers University and at the University of Vermont. Her first book, the New York Times best-selling Between You and Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen, was about her day job at The New Yorker, where she worked for over thirty years as a copy editor. Published in January 2019, Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen, is about what she did in her spare time: study Greek, travel to Greece, read the classics, and otherwise cultivate life as a philhellene.
